It makes only sense to use /> in XHTML documents. Either remove all the
/> notations or switch to XHTML syntax. The latter would most likely
require that you change the document type declaration in your document
to e.g.

  <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
   "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

Remove the "height" attribute from the table element. Maybe you can use
CSS' "height" property instead, see

A <table> must have at least one row, i.e., a <tr> descendant. The
entire code seems superfluous...
